    I haven't heard any news about Nicole's sentence - only that she pleaded guilty and that her sentencing hearing was scheduled for August 5th.

    At sentencing Aug. 5, Bobek faces a penalty that could range from probation to five years in prison.
    Don't you have your trial and then are sentanced a while later, like weeks or even a month??? If sentenced wouldn't we know what that was right now??? Anybody know???

    News

    Found this article. Not sure if it's new. I believe so.
    Prosecutors say Nicole Bobek will not receive prison time. They will instead ask for a penalty of less than a year in the county jail.

    here is a link to another artice that appeared today. Seems like she will get a year in county jail....if the judge agrees with the prosecutor. it appears that she will be sentenced today.

    Nicole may have assisted law enforcement with information ... or, it may be jail overcrowding (I don't know how crowded the NJ jails might be) Either explanation applies to others facing similar charges.

    Or her involvement was being a user in real life, but it was overblown by the media into being a drug kingpin.

    We don't have any way to know, really.

    She received 5 years probation, and if she misses a single visit or fails a drug test, she will be in jail for the full 5 years.

    She says she is working on her GED, and is working with Special Olympians for her community service requirement.

    The media reported on the charges that were brought.

    Yes, Nicole entered a plea of guilty for distributing/selling of meth. Her 5 year sentence was NOT for using but for dealing and being part of the distribution ring.
    She got off with a very light sentence considering the prosecutors were asking for one year in jail and four years of probation.



    Hopefully she can turn her life around.
